Treasures of China and the Yangtze
Discover the glories of China’s history and culture, from booming Shanghai to the ancient Forbidden City
This voyage through China will carry you from the ultramodern high-rises of Shanghai to the ancient wonder of the Great Wall, revealing the amazing diversity of this great country along the way. Follow the mighty Yangtze into the heart of China, reveling in the mist-shrouded shrines and fanciful, weather- shaped rock formations of the ravishing Three Gorges.
This program provides insight into the marvels of both ancient and modern China alike, with a focus on the great Yangtze River itself, punctuated by three exciting cities: Shanghai, Xi’an, and Beijing. Let the bustle of Shanghai, China’s largest city, dazzle you and the famous Shanghai Acrobats delight you. Come face-to-face with the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses in Xi’an, once buried with the first emperor of China and meant to protect him in the afterlife. Then visit Beijing’s Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square and walk along the legendary Great Wall, one of the wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
